denunciatory of the egyptian government, in my judgment. hillary put out a magnificent statement that follows the white house, repudiating the american embassy statement and making a statement calling the egyptian government to task. in libya, we were more conciliatory because the libyan president denounced the attack. but that is not adequate. if they can't control the cops and military, it is not a government. we should be denunciatory. i doubt there is a single country in the world left in civilization that would not have called back its ambassador. and certainly cut off, or put in terms that relates to the 2 billion that egypt receives from the united states, i am sure libya receives money. it was even greater because the american ambassador -- i am supportive of the arab spring. the times and elsewhere, i said to myself, they are not great people. but they are people that surely will turn out nice to us. it doesn't make any sense. >> the events of the last week, the embassy attacks, it will result in a further ongoing shift of jewish americans changing -- >> i think there is a little mor

going to be demand to be paid, but reach the point where the foreign governments will demand exorbitant amounts to lend to us, i'm sorry to say, there's not enough to be done, we're going to have to raise taxes, and we're going to have to do it. >> why start with something that will prevent you from cutting. >> it's not going to be-- >> with all due respect, ben, the history of this country the last 20 years, or 30 years, trying to do deficit reduction is raising taxes and not doing the cutting on the other end. why don't we try a different approach? why don't we try an approach and cut stuff and then maybe raise, at thats later? >> we can't cut. we can't cut. we can't cut. >> then we're might as well as go down in flames if we can't cut. >> raise taxes. >> neil: charles, one of the interesting things this week, the 47% romney thing and i go back and forth no matter who's nose got out of joint as a result of the comments picked up at a fundraiser. the 47% should stagger you, how we get 47% don't pay taxes. i take nothing away from those on social security, retirement. for whatever reaso
in the last year and a half. this weekend a major new battle began between the government and rebel forces in a key city. nbc's ann curry was inside syria this weekend and is along the border with turkey tonight. >> reporter: lester, good evening, the war in syria has taken a dramatic turn as rebels has launched a massive talk on multiple fronts. just 40 miles from the tur,ish border. this weekend as fighting raged a large part of the treasured marketplace, a world heritage site that dates back to the 14th century was burned to ashes. the army says if they can take the city, they will strike a critical blow to the regime in a war that has killed as many as 30,000 people so far. our news team traveled inside syria this weekend and a rebel commander told us he is frustrated by the power of government warplanes. he told us if the world enforced a no fly zone or gave the free syrian anti-aircraft weapons, this war would be over in two days. many fear this war could become a wider conflict, as many as 700,000 refugees could flee syria by the end of this year. >> ann curry on the syrian boarder.
, their own government, and where all syrians will have a say in their future. jamie in? jamie: david lee miller live at the united nations with present to report today. david lee, thanks. jon? jon: there are a number of pressing foreign policy issues bedeviling this administration right now. the president touched on some of them in his speech. could they be decided factors for voters in november? how did the president do? with us for reaction, karl rove, a fox news contributor, former senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to president george w. bush. so what did you make of the president's speech? >> there were good parts of it. his talk, he talked about the necessity for democracy and tolerance throughout the world. about how he, the expansion of democracy would make for a more prosperous and peaceful society in the world. i thought it was strong, his denunsy ages of the assad regime in syria. he had strong words about iran. we will do what we much. on the other hand he has been saying this about syria for more than a year without much apparent action on the part of the united states
elsewhere. he was not focused enough on the economy. his attention had been on things like a government takeover of health care and apologizing for america abroad." in our fact check that day, we quoted what obama had said in overseas trips, including an assertion that at times the u.s. had acted contrary to its own ideals or had been selective in where it sought to promote democracy. it had sometimes shown an arrogance toward allies. we pointed out that when he made those kinds of statements that suggested the u.s. is not completely above reproach, he usually balance it with praise for things the country had done right. all that -- that is in a long tradition of presidents acknowledging past imperfections. these cannot by any normal dictionaries amount to apologies. either formal or informal. again, last month, when romney accepted his party's nomination, he repeated the assertion that obama had begun his presidency with an apology tour, and obama had confessed the u.s. had "dictated to other nations." that fact check story went into greater detail, pointing out that obama's trips to e
. the idea under your plan for future seniors would be that the federal government would write that senior a check, essentially and say "now, you can go buy a private insurance plan or you can buy medicare from the federal government"? >> is that essentially it? >> that's essentially it. people would have a choice of either traditional government- run fee-for-service medicare or a private plan which has to offer the same benefits. it can't be skinnyed down. >> pelley: will the check that comes from the government cover the cost of government-run medicare or the private health insurance? >> oh, yeah, people will have a choice of at least two plans where they have no additional out-of-pocket cost other than the traditional medicare formula so they've got to have at least a couple options where they don't have to put up more money. as to the government plan, as long as the government is able to keep its cost down, keep its overhead down it could well be one of the lowest costs, if not the lowest cost option. >> pelley: separately republican party said today that it has filed a complaint again
. neil: and the government can. >> we have reached a tipping point. no matter who is in charge will not be able to fix the structural breakage in this economy. there is an appropriate partnership, we may give or terms and specifics but no beard with a thoughtful mind could say that private sector alone would lift this economy back to where it belongs, there are certain government actions that need to be taken as a comment to capitalism. >> you are now a socialist? >> not on the record. >> leo hindery, he actually does care about our country, clueless about that guy, but he does care, i'm kidding. neil: going the other way, do you remember yoko's big no, no, he wants to start a war on drilling, another hollywood hotshot giving her a run for her money, that is next, wait until yoko hears the competition, she will be hearing more of this. rachel quit the corporate grind to start her own interior design business. she's got a growing list of clients she keeps in touch with using e-mail marketing from constantcontact.com. constantcontact is easy and affordable. it lets her send out u
diplomats. and what is the signal that our government is sending the rest of the world? >> joining me now is traveling press secretary for the obama campaign. great to have you here. >> good morning. >> i want to remind everybody that if we need to interrupt and jump out of this because mitt romney will be sitting down with brian williams. so i just want to give you fair warning that we may have to jump over to that. but as we have heard, everybody has been tough on the president and rudy giuliani was asked about the president not having any by lot ral melateral meetin planned and here's what he had to say. >> he's not doing the job of being president, he's doing the job of candidate. president obama has decided at a time grave crisis that he regards as bump in the road that he can take the time not to be president for the next six weeks and let it just play itself out p. >> as we look back over history in 2004, george w. bush held five bilateral meetings at the u.n., last year president obama had 13 one-on-one meetings. just using the president's own examples of meetings from last year,
've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger. >>> developing right now, republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan is taking new aim at president obama's handling of the war in afghanistan. in fact, ryan just spoke a couple hours ago to laura engram on her radio show. >>> those are new comments from congressman ryan a couple house ago. in a new interview the u.s. commander in afghanistan says he's outraged by the recent surge and insider attacks. >> i'm mad as hell about them to be honest with you. we're going
a number of people living off the government. you know, my wife and i have given so much back to the st. louis city schools at roosevelt high school, for the past six years we've been knee-deep in the problem center city. and by the way, we 50,000 kids now with normandie going the other way and not accredited schools, 50,000. philip busch stadium standing room only. we need more people employed in the state. we need more opportunity, we need more dreams to be fulfilled and we are simply languishing at the bottom of the barrel almost every economic category. you know, a lot of education is leadership and it starts at the top. i think there's well-intentioned people. were starting to show signs of progress and it was. we been in there. we've been in the trenches. for six years we've been trying to find a solution to the problems. kansas city, we can help getting it going from the ideas we have. there is racial disparity that comes to economic opportunity and jobs. in the best gift we give somebody as a career. >> jim higgins. >> okay, well one of the most inefficient things you can do wit
they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it, it's an entitlement and the government should give it to them and they will vote for this president no matter what. >> a new poll finds 54% of all voters have an unfavorable view of romney's comments and 57% of independents feel the same way. that's a big reason why romney is in so much trouble in ohio and no republican has ever won the white house without winning the state. but when asked about how losing ohio would affect the electoral map, romney's campaign response said, i prefer to look at the map hol lift clee. he wants to look at the map holistically? how about realistically? president obama is trying to seal the deal. >> values are hard work and personal responsibility, those values that we believe in don't just belong to workers or businesses or the rich or the poor, the 53% or the 47%, the 1% or the 99%. those are american values. and if you're with me and if you work with me, we'll win what county again. we'll win ohio again. we'll finish what we started. we'll remind the world why the united states of america is the g
that the government is not going to pull the rug out from under them. talk to a small-business person, a manufacturer, someone holding on a hoping they do not have to lay off the next round of people. what do they see? they see regulation after regulation coming from washington. they have no idea what it will cost them. they are worried about going forward because of hidden costs. then they see our president promising the top tax rate on small businesses goes to about 40%. [boos ] that only pays for 8% of his proposed deficit spending. overseas, where i come from, that means lake superior. [laughter] we both live near canada. the canadians have this figured out. other countries have this figured out. canadians lowered taxes on businesses to 15%. president obama wants the tax rate on our successful small businesses and job creators above 40%. when we tax our job creators at much higher tax rates than foreign competitors, we lose and they win. we do not want to tax the small businesses. our jobs come from these successful small businesses. we want them to hire more people. that is essential. none of th
in afghanistan and no evidence that the american plan to hand over to a credible, stable afghan government will work. these village elders tell me once u.s. troops leave, a civil war will begin and u.s.-trained afghan forces will not be able to stop it. >> are you preparing for this fight? are you already stockpiling weapons and ammunition and getting yourself ready? yes, we are, we will definitely fight, he says. and what about the afghan government? it's meaningless here, they say. you think it's possible that the taliban will try and come back. yes, they will, he says. it makes a decade's work of american battles seem futile. it wasn't always like this. >> the united states military has begun strikes. >> at first, the war had momentum. and a clear purpose. al qaeda with bases in afghanistan attack the united states on 9/11. just three months later, the u.s. drove the taliban from power, al qaeda and osama bin laden were on the run. it was done with a few hundred cia officers, special forces, and air power. a quick victory. but not decisive. >> that was nbc's richard engel reporting. and
. and later it's mitt versus newt. >> does the government have a we've all had those moments. when you lost the thing you can't believe you lost. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a little trouble a long way from home... as an american express cardmember you can expect some help. but what you might not expect, is you can get all this with a prepaid card. spends like cash. feels like membership. monarch of marketing analysis. with the ability to improve roi through seo all by cob. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle... and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price. i'm going b-i-g. [ male announcer ] good choice business pro. good choice. go national. go like a pro. >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance. if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital a
about is taxes and all they want to talk about is how bad the government is. i voted for ronald reagan in 1980. i do have a disclaimer. i was drunk that day. but he made -- you know, ronald reagan, one thing he did was he made people distrust their government. and really a lot of people hate their government. because of -- >> now, mud cat, let me ask you a question. let me ask you a question. i didn't want to cut you off. but i have to get to you because i don't want to run out of time on you and steve. i've been waiting all day because i knew you were coming on. i've looked at the polls and i understand group after group the president's establishing a commanding lead. latinos up 45 points. he leads women by 19 points. catholics by 15 points. all of them i could understand given the policy positions of this campaign. but here's one that is right down your alley to explain to me. romney is losing the nascar base, the nascar base. obama leads romney 49-42 among nascar enthusiasts, according to the new zogby poll. can you explain that? >> because thurston howell doesn't drive a car. it's
are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe that they are entitle to health care, food, to housing. they pay no income tax. >> president obama has no intention of allowing mitt romney to run away from those heavy words, especially in ohio. >> i don't believe we are going to get very far. if we've got leaders who write-off half the nation as a bunch of victims who don't take responsibility for their own lives. let me tell you. i have spent a lot of time in ohio, and i don't meet a lot of victims. i see a lot of hard-working ohioans. >> a new poll shows 54% of mitt romney's words unfavorably and 32% are favorable to what mitt romney had to say. that same poll shows that 61% of americans have an unfavorable opinion of the way mitt romney is running his campaign. that's up 12 points from july. 54% of americans have a favorable opinion of the way mitt romney is running his campaign. that's up 8 points from july. the romney campaign tried to bail out their sinking ship today by handing mitt romney this script. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's
values? spell them out. >> using government as a communal progressive force to protect the safety net and to come together and invest in innovation, education, infrastructure. we're in it together. versus the ryan budget, which used as a stand-in first republican nominee, which says we're on it alone, get rid of government and give you a voucher, find medicare on your own. here comes romney and he sort of fits the mold. he's a 1 percenter. he shows no empathy, even before the 47%. >> a pure market guy. >> they use bain, from the beginning, as cynthia noted, as a value. he's out there making money. i'm thinking of wider ames and goals. >> a new bloomberg goal that has president obama leading mitt romney by six points nationally. for one big reason, half of the polls say they have an unfavorable view of mitt romney. bloomberg reports, this is a september high for a presidential challenger in the last three decades. bloomberg quotes a 40-year-old insurance agent from virginia, self-described libertarian on why she's going to vote for obama. now, this isn't cheerleading for obama by any m
government. first, to turn to the defense of marriage act and proposition 8 cases -- i will talk about doma cases for it. first, for some history on doma, it was passed in 1996 and has two main sections from only one is really at issue in section 2 is about trying to protect states from being forced to recognized marriage in other states. the section that deals with the defense of marriage for federal purposes, federal law, federal taxes, a whole host of bedroll laws. it says, for the purpose of federal law, the word marriage means of a legal union between one man and one woman, husband and wife, and spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex. that is the section of the law that president obama has declined to defend. at the house, they have created the bipartisan legal adviser group that is during the defense of these laws since the administration has advocated its role in defending it. -- has abdicated its role in defending it. there are several cases that have petitions for the court to decide amongst. the first one, probably the front runner, is a combination case of massachuset
bankrupting the government is just way too advanced for us regular folks to understand. it's unfathommably complex like string theory. you would have to grasp that the universe is actually 11 coexisted dimensions. eight of which are where romney shelters his wealth. (laughter) just trust him, just trust him. (applause) the middle class is broken down by the side of the road and paul ryan is driving up in a black windowless van and saying get in. (laughter) don't ask where we are we going. it would take him too long to explain. (laughter) just get in. and it puts the lotion on its body. (applause) now folks, either we go with the romney-ryan plan or it's four more years of barack obama. so even obama did get some good economic news. >> these job numbers show that the president has recovered every single job lost on his watch and then some. that makes the president a net job creator. >> stephen: there it is. obama is a net job creator. so congratulations to robert baird, the guy who got the job. (laughter) but millions of americans are still looking for work. particularly low skilled workers
minutes." >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance, people -- if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care, and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. >> well -- >> in the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. >> it's interesting the people who don't have health care live in apartments. that may be his latest etch-a-sketch moment. listen to what he told mike barnicle a couple years ago on "morning joe." same question, same subject. listen to how the answer is different. >> do you believe in universal coverage? >> oh, sure. it doesn't make a lot of sense for us to have millions and millions of people who have no health insurance and yet who can go to the emergency room and get entirely free care for which they have no responsibility,
the 47% of us. 96% of people have received some government assistance. >> oh, he hates the 97%. >> stephanie: mitt romney wrote 47% is dependent on the government. it turns out 96% of americans have used government assistance at one point or another in their lives according to a new study. >> i don't care about those people. >> stephanie: wait, there's more. he's preinsulted the other 4%. young adults who are not yet eligible for many policies account for the remaining 4% so he will insult them eventually. >> i don't care about 100% of the american people. >> my campaign is about disenfranchising 100% of the american people. >> stephanie: the survey does not include government activities -- >> i will be in switzerland if you need me. >> stephanie: the interstate highway system, food safety regulations, only tangible benefits. even there, he's insulted 96%. >> food safety? who needs that? [ applause ] >> play russian roulette with your canned stew from 1924, dinty moore. >> stephanie: dinty moore stew.
it on, let's have a big debate about the philosophy of government. down in florida they don't care about the philosophy. >> all politics is local. >> they want the program, they like the program, don't mess with the program. >> let's go to something really big because i like this guy so much. this is jim webb who is retiring as the senator from virginia. he's a democrat but a different kind of democrat. many people, including me, believe he's eviscerated romney with these words he spoke. remember what romney was saying, there's the takers and the makers out there, including among the takers, unfortunately for mr. romney, are those people who served us in uniform, may have been dismembered in some cases, spent the rest of their lives dealing with the injuries and wounds they suffered for the country, and they don't consider themselves takers exactly. let's listen to jim webb defend them. >> governor romney and i are right about the same age, young guys. like millions in the our generation, we came to adulthood facing the harsh realities of the vietnam war. 2.7 million in our age group wen
the government as a two party government. that is how i think it should stay. third parties -- they have never made an impact in elections. i do not think they are relevant at all. i want to thank you for letting me get -- this is my first time in years i have gotten on c- span. host: we are glad to hear from me. caller: know, i do not think they are relevant. host: next is shannon from missouri. are you a member of a third party? caller: yes. you get disgruntled with you hear people like bill oreilly and sean hannity saying ron paul can't win. it every time he gets up to speak he draws a bigger crowds then obama or romney. the motion is amazing. i run into so many people -- you always hear they cannot win. if they could get more coverage other than c-span, c-span are the only people that are fair to third-party people compared to fox or cnn or ms nbc or any of the other ones. i wish more people would watch c-span and educate themselves to receive more votes. host: thank you for the call. one of your saying -- as we said earlier, ross perot sitting down for his first extended interview in many
austerity cuts. it was the third such protest in five days. on friday the government presented a draft budget that will cut overall spending by $40 billion euros. >> a small earthquake shaking suburb west of dallas saturday. no serious damage or injuries were reported. >> and some lifers in california could go free. governor jerry brown giving the okay to a law that can release them. >> gregg: shocking numbers, u.s. airlines raked in $2 billion in baggage ties during the first half of the year. that the largest amount ever collected for a six-month period. this as a new report emerges finding passengers are facing more fees than ever before and fewer choices. how about that? anything consumers can do. ed joins us managing partner of investment firm. rise of oil prices make a corresponding rise in jet fuel and 30% of operating costs for the airlines. are the airlines trying to make up for it in other ways like the fees? >> sure. look this is great lesson in economics. it's supply and demand and competition. when there is less competition. usually the quality goes down and prices go up.
%, think that substance of his comment about dependence on government is somewhat true. he is right. what do you make of that? >> you know something, 1935, fdr in his state of the union, said this relief, that is welfare is a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human shar hume must and shall get out of this business of welfare or relief, he is right, they did get out of it everyone agrees, if you have somebody that is down and got a rile problem, we all get together and help them out, and that -- against something that appeals to the american people. but idea that people on food stamps are never going to provide for their own food in america, their entire lives, when i grew up in washington d.c., 800,000 people, half african-american, half white, no body was on food stamps, there were no school lunches, now maybe you need some, but 47 million on food stamps, 80 billion for food stamps, more and more folks needing to fed by government, i think all of us sense that something is happening to the character of country and our people when we get there. neil: i do think you are right on this res
's yours? >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance. if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care. and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that was mitt romney last night on "60 minutes." here's what mitt romney said to essentially the same question two very, very long years ago. >> do you believe in universal coverage? >> oh, sure. it doesn't make a lot of sense for us to have millions and millions of people who have no health insurance and yet who can go to the emergency room and get entearly free care for which they have no responsibility, particularly if they're people who have sufficient means to pay their own way. >> joining me now former chairman of the democratic national committee and vermont governor dr. howard dean and the senior editor at the new republican and author of the book "sick". >> that w
, in china. the chinese government now has restrictions in place that limit the number of foreign films that can be shown in the country to just 20, 20 films a year. the chinese people hungry for more entertainment options have turned like many americans to the internet to a site called youku, the chinese version of you tube. chinese sensors banned you tube in china. youku became the number one source for all source of prioritied movies and t.v. shows. the most popular is the american break. they said, they're putting stolen content produced by american companies on line, making youku one of the biggest tech companies in china valued over $2 billion. it's advised by companies like goldman sachs. to be fair, youku has tried to limit stolen content on its site but it and other similar sites are costing american companies and american jobs big time. u.s. companies have lost as much as $48 billion, and nearly a million jobs because of china's refusal to enforce intellectual property laws. now romney is using this issue to clobber the president on trade policy. in fact, he just released a ne
